During the ordered school-building closure period, schools may continue to receive reimbursement for meals served by participating in the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) or the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). Schools may operate as open, restricted open or targeted outreach sites. Refer to the map and map site key for available meal service in your area. Contact your school or district for details about their meal programs.
SUMMER FOOD SERVICE PROGRAM
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a USDA program offered through the Ohio Department of Education. The program provides free meals to low-income children during school vacations. Throughout the United States, more than 26 million children eat school lunch every day when school is in session. Half of them receive their meals free or at a reduced price due to low income. The Summer Food Service Program offers those children nutritious food when school is not in session. During the Summer of 2014, Ohio served 3.8 million meals at 1,624 sites operated by 191 sponsoring organizations
